We loved our cruise on the Silhouette in 2014 and were excited to travel on Reflection as a sister ship. The destinations were also good destinations for us. We found the ship, service, food, cabin and staff to be as excellent as we remembered but had a few disappointments as follows: 1.Lack of good information about destinations on daily sheets - could have carried info on local transport to key visitor sites (we can't afford to go on Celebrity trip at every port), restaurant and bar listing, bit of history about the area. 2. Session offer at Gym (5 for 4) where difficult to make the narrow list of sessions included - why not all sessions? Also disappointed there was not a daily early morning Yoga session considering how popular it is now. Great studio though. 3. Portion size of vegetarian main course in Opus were laughable at times - I don't eat things that were moving around but I do eat! Doubled up on two occasions. 4. Sauvignon Blanc was outside the package - why? You can get perfectly good SV at same level as the Pinot G and Chardonnay and I really don't like either of those varieties. 5. Wi-Fi extremely expensive - can only assume this is to deaden demand due to capacity but meant each port was an hour catching up on web stuff when we could have been exploring. 6. Excursions were terrific but very expensive 7. Felt so sorry for the poor guys trying to get your photo at every port - felt a bit like being 'barked' even though they were really sweet. What I loved: 1. I especially loved the historical talks on days at sea- excellent. 2. The selection of veggie food was good in buffet restaurant 3. Loved all the ship's art and sculpture - interesting and a feast for the senses 4. Bars were all brilliant and very different 5 Musical entertainments wonderful (especially in Ensemble Lounge) 6. Solarium area on deck 14 very relaxing 7. The captain had a great style with announcements and good to see officers so visible in entertainment 8. Entertainment Director was hilarious - he should have his own TV series. We loved his channel. Good support team too. Thank you

Visit every staircase to see the art: like a floating gallery, just amazing!

We loved our cruise on the Silhouette in 2014 and were excited to travel on Reflection as a sister ship. The destinations were also good destinations for us. We found the ship, service, food, cabin and staff to be as excellent as we remembered but had a few disappointments as follows:

2. Session offer at Gym (5 for 4) where difficult to make the narrow list of sessions included - why not all sessions? Also disappointed there was not a daily early morning Yoga session considering how popular it is now. Great studio though.

3. Portion size of vegetarian main course in Opus were laughable at times - I don't eat things that were moving around but I do eat! Doubled up on two occasions.

5. Wi-Fi extremely expensive - can only assume this is to deaden demand due to capacity but meant each port was an hour catching up on web stuff when we could have been exploring.

6. Excursions were terrific but very expensive

7. Felt so sorry for the poor guys trying to get your photo at every port - felt a bit like being 'barked' even though they were really sweet.

What I loved:

1. I especially loved the historical talks on days at sea- excellent.

2. The selection of veggie food was good in buffet restaurant

3. Loved all the ship's art and sculpture - interesting and a feast for the senses

4. Bars were all brilliant and very different

5 Musical entertainments wonderful (especially in Ensemble Lounge)

6. Solarium area on deck 14 very relaxing

7. The captain had a great style with announcements and good to see officers so visible in entertainment

8. Entertainment Director was hilarious - he should have his own TV series. We loved his channel. Good support team too.
